• Hi all
    Just a notice, we recently discovered that someone got into a moderator account and started hard deleting a load of key and legacy threads...around 150 threads have been lost dating back to 2007 and some weeks ago so we can't roll the forums back.
    Luckily no personal data could be accessed by this moderator, and we've altered the permissions so hard deleting isn't possible in the future
    Sorry for any inconvenience with this and sorry for any lost posts.

The Fonz

Totodile, Charmander, and Torchic....excatly what I chose when I first had those options!
Chikorita, Torchic and Squirtle.

Im going for the underdog starters.

Underdogs? Lol. I only consider one of this pokemon in this trio as an underdog and that is Chikorita and that's only because it will get owned Falkners gym. But I would totally pick these three because their final evolutions. Meganium, Blaziken, and Blastoise will own!!! Hmmm... I'll just pumped them up with them speed vitamins... Lol. They will need it.


Water Vamp Trainer
Mudkip is obviously the best water pokemon out of the 3 :D
Cyndaquil is just cool
and Bulbasaur because i havent played a round with Venasaur ever!


either chickorita or totodile, bulbasaur or squirtle, and torchic or treeko
Chikorita, Torchic and Charmander. My original choices for their respective games

Since I'm getting HG and SS I shall chose

SS Chikorita Mudkip Charmander
HG Totodile Torchic Bulbasaur


Balance is Key!
I would go with Cyndaquil for the pure awesomeness of Typhlosion, Squirtle because it has FREAKING CANNONS, and Sceptile simply because Leaf Blade is an epic win ( and if you want a ground/water combo, dont pick mudkip, just catch a barboach later)

As I've already started my HeartGold with Chikorita, once I get to this point in the game, I'll probably pick Mudkip and Charmander. All three of them were historically my favorite starters from their respective generations. And hey, nostalgia trips are always fun.


Fire Mouse
Cyndaquil: Favorite pokemon
Bulbasaur: I've always liked it because it's grass/poison and I adore the plant on it's back!
Torchic: Cute, plus Blaziken is awesome


War Never Changes
SS: Totodile, Treecko, Charmander
HG: Chikorita, Torchic, Bulbasaur.

Totodile, Torchic, Bulbasaur.
Previously, I had a thing for the bird/flying-inspired starters: Charmander (-> Zard) on LeafGreen, Torchic on Emerald, and Piplup on Diamond.
Nowadays, that hasn't really changed ('cept for Mudkip in Emerald since Roxanne was annoying me), but the 2G starters lack any bird or flying influence. So Water it is. My Zard from FireRed will do just fine, freeing me up for the Kanto Grass starter in SoulSilver, and completing my starter type trinity.


There Is No NiGHTS!
I don't like using the different types. There are only three that I even LIKE, and those would be Chikorita, Torchic, and Charmander. But if I had to use a water Pokemon, it would be Totodile, because I can not stand Mudkip.
